Accessorize Lipstick - Shade 7, Velvet Pink!

I got this Accessorize lipstick a little while ago, just before I regained my love of lipsticks and I didn’t really take a huge amount of notice of it until just before I went on holiday, where it actually had a decent amount of outings! Please excuse my silly lips, I still don't know what to do with them/myself when taking these photographs - ha!
The finish is kind of satin-y/frosty which catches the light but doesn’t look overly glossy, and the colour is lovely; it’s kind of a very slightly coral-y pink and depending on how the light catches it, I find it can lean either more towards pink, or coral... both of which look great in my view! It smells of coconut to me, a bit like sun cream to be honest – but not in a bad way, I quite liked it.

It’s not very moisturising and can look a bit, well crap on dry lips but I do still like it on the days where my lips are in better condition. Wear time is actually better than I expected, but not as good as my more expensive lipsticks (my Tom Ford one especially) although saying that, when it does wear off, it seems to do it fairly evenly which is always a bonus!
Pigmentation is fine, it’s not heavily pigmented but you don’t have to layer it on to see the colour either. The photo below shows just a very light sweep of it over my lips whilst I was on holiday (hence the even wonkier lips than usual as I wasn’t expecting it would be used on the blog) which I liked equally as much as the full colour – great for wearing with a heavier eye, which is what I was doing here!!

The lipstick is only £5, and for this price I think it’s actually quite a bargain and would happily buy another if I saw a colour that took my fancy!

Available from Superdrug and Accessorize websites and in store too!


  1. Looks really good! I haven't tried anything from the Accessorize range! Makes me wish I was more of a lipstick girl! I always end up taking it off! Maybe these new lip pens could be the answer :)

  2. Lip pens are great for colour without any heavy feeling on the lips, I reviewed and swatched a Max Factor one a little while ago - unsure if you saw it or not, but if not have a look and see what you think?

    I've only just started loving lipsticks again - but in a big way, you'll see why very soon when I post about my latest haul - when it arrives, ha! x

  3. Loved your review and the picture detailing
